[QUOTE=DrHolliday;2595457]IMO I'd try to go 4.56's with that set up. might cost you more, but 4.88's and 35's with the 6 spd will put you at almost 3k rpms on the highway at 70 mph. I'm on 5.13's and 40's and I'm very happy with the end result.QUOTE]
There is only about a 180 RPM difference @ 70 Mph.. Between 4.56's and 4.88's...
Between the two you can see it's not really that big of difference.
Mileage between the two gears "could" be a toss up.. 4.56's makes more sense to me here.
But no reason to run a higher rpm on a flat freeway... Which (4.56's)should also pull most grades as well.
Yes, my last Jeep was a 6-speed manual as well, I ran 35's with 3.73's..
If I could have kept the 6-speed I would have got 4.56's..

If your going to add lockers it would be the perfect time to do it as well.
I'll talk to Banks316 and see if he'd like to start doing gear installs with me. If so we would be able to do a gear job for you cheaper than anywhere else around.

Jeff..I don't look at it as "non-Rubi," but more of I am "Sport."
And no, I think 35s are perfect for me...
|07-16-2012 01:32 AM|
Scott, you are a non-rubi right? If so, the highest you can go is 5.13's.
Are you and auto or manual? Do you plan on going to 37's?

|scoobyjeep||i am running 4.88 gears in my tj sitting on 35's, work very well,|

He has done numerous Jeeps, all of them and knows his stuff.
Btw, he does the work himself. and he is anal too. Imo, more then I am on my own rig. lol
I can give you "many more references" too, Of Jeep guys else where who have had their work done by him, and won't go anywhere else for gear setups.

Nothing against Holbrook, At the time people I trusted said, Go to Leonard's and that's what I did.. 20 yrs later, I haven't had a reason to go anywhere else. Leonard can be "very busy" at times. But to me when he is it's worth the wait.. :-)

So I am thinking of doing the regear thing, now that the Jeep is sitting on 35s.
Anyone have recs on a good shop? Any other info to help this gear newb?
Ideally, I'd like to run 5.38s but I heard the stock axles limit the options to 4.88.
